Gun-Toter From Obama Event: I, Like My Pastor, Want The President To Die
The violent anti-Obama sentiment coming out of central Arizona managed to get still more toxic over the weekend.
Chris Broughton, the man who brought an AR-15 rifle and a handgun to an Arizona Obama rally earlier this month, says he “concurs” with his fundamentalist pastor’s prayer for President Obama “to die and go to hell.”
And in an interview with a local TV station, pastor Steven Anderson himself elaborated on his statement to TPMmuckraker that he would prefer Obama to die of natural causes so “he’s not some martyr.”
“I don’t want him to be a martyr, we don’t need another holiday. I’d like to see him die, like Ted Kennedy, of brain cancer,” Anderson now says.
Broughton said of Anderson’s controversial August 16 “Why I Hate Barack Obama” sermon: “I concur, I think we’d be better off if God would send [Obama] where he’s going now instead of later. [Obama] is destroying our country.”

Broughton said he moved to the Tempe area to attend Anderson’s storefront church, which is an “old-fashioned, independent, fundamental, King James Bible only, separated Baptist church.”

Roughly 24 hours after attending Anderson’s anti-Obama sermon, Broughton made national headlines when he showed up heavily armed to an Obama event in Phoenix.

The Secret Service says they’re aware of the latest out of Arizona and “appropriate follow up will be conducted.”

Umhm…sure.

  1. Broughton: “I just want him to die…”

    So that’s what they’re teaching at an independent, fundamental, King James Bible-only,separated Baptist church. Hmmm… must be a different King James than the one I’ve got.

    Amazing!

    You accept the idea, basically, that there are going to be all kind of nuts running around in any nation with a large population. I just don’t like the fact that ours pretty much all have a bunch of guns.

  2. Just visit Tempe; Mesa, Apache Junction for a few weeks (as I’ve done a few times), and you’ll meet up with people who don’t even want Arizona to be a part of the USA.

    There’s a substantial number of Nazi’s and survivalists who hide up in ‘dem dare hills’ – they’re as kooky as they come, and it’s sad that MSM even gives them a minute of time on the television.

    Ignorance does prevail far too much in this country; MSM plays on that ignorance – I just ‘ignor stupidity’.

    • I think ignoring them is a great way to proceed… except when they show up carrying loaded assault rifles at Presidential gatherings. I find that truly scary, not to mention socially insulting.
